The man in his 80’s was taken by ambulance to Mayo University Hospital.

The occupants of the car sustained no physical injuries.

Traffic diversions were put in place overnight and Garda forensic investigators were called to examine the scene.

The road reopened to traffic just before 1pm this afternoon.
